" Let me tell you why you are here. You're here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You've lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage." Matthew 5: 13 The Message Bible
This hit me like a ton of bricks this morning.. We are to be SALT to BRING OUT the God FLAVORS of the earth! My first thought..we as christians have become our OWN FLAVORS. We arent content with just being salt. We want to be garlic or thyme or basil. Ha. God has simply called and made us to be salt to COMPLIMENT His attributes and flavors of this earth. That's where we as christians have lost it. We rush into a situations of a hurting world, and instead of stepping back and letting God use our salt to flavor and bring healing- we flair up and impose garlic, or SELF on the hurting people. And garlic is good, but salt is lasting when it brings out the God flavors- and its what people were created to need.
Stop trying to figure out and be your own flavor, and get in the word of God see what salt is suppose to look like and do. Just be salt.
